...says the guy comparing machines based only on the spec list.

We're just throwing blind assertions at each other, but since I don't 
want to go PC shopping just to pursue the argument, let's keep it 
theoretical.  Which do you suppose is a harder task:

a) for you to show me a third-the-price PC that's truly an 
apples-to-apples comparison with some given Mac; or

b) for me to find a PC and configure it show it's actually worthy of 
being compared to some given Mac as an equal?

Tough jobs both, but I think my task would be easier.  If nothing else, 
I have the reductive case: dual-boot a Mac.
